UAI Tofu – UAI Tofu
“UAI Tofu” is a project that centers on tofu manufacturing of organic and non-transgenic seeds from family farms. The mission is to promote peace through vegan foods that have a high nutritional value and have big possibilities in popular culinary traditions. To them, every single gram produced has direct impact in the change they want to see in the world. UAI Tofu is located in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais, Brazil and the contributors already been practicing veganism for a long time. Laercio Almeida, the founder, has been vegan for 10 years, despite coming from a family that used animals for generations for slaughter and dairy products.
The goal of the project is to recognize that animal oppression is one of the most important issues in the world today. Considering animals as members of our moral community will directly impact public health and ecosystems, and will awaken the best in us. A plant-based diet improves the population’s health; generates fewer toxins, and saves about 90% of water resources. The UAI Tofu promotes workshops in schools, churches, and universities that are interested in participating in this silent revolution.
Pollination Project funds will be used to hire a press office for two months to get the word out, a table for meals in the company, a small refrigerator, uniforms, boots, and a sampling of products for opinion makers and sales representatives.
